Whether you plan on staying in to devour sweet treats all weekend or you're keen to get out and about, there's no doubt Easter will provide us with the goods this year.

We love getting out and about, being tourists in our own city and exploring Brisbane's suburbs. This week we've zoomed in on the middle of town, cruising through the city towards Albion, making pit stops in Fortitude Valley and Bowen Hills. Each of these area's flaunt epic eateries, cool AF precincts, trendy bars and cafes, shopping districts and so much more. We know it's easy to 'stick to what you know' and can keep in our bubbles, but it's time to stretch the legs and see what else Brissy has to offer. From mini-festivals to Japanese markets, late night bargain hunting and food that'll leave your taste buds in a frenzy, we've found what's hot and happening in upcoming weeks and we think you'll approve.
